Atlas is the first text on performing and interpreting CT urography.
Chapters detail the indications and techniques for CT urography, review the risks of radiation exposure, show how normal urinary tract anatomy and variants appear on CT scans, and demonstrate a wide range of urinary tract abnormalities as they appear on thin-section CT. The final chapter illustrates artifacts and diagnostic pitfalls.
Chapters on abnormalities follow a case-based teaching file format. Each case is presented on a two-page spread, with images and succinct discussion of the entity and how CT urography was used to diagnose it.
